So this post today might just count as procrastinating.
The next on my list of makes is the Turia dungarees.
I'm not sure what it is about dungarees, but I have a strange attraction to them. I'm not sure if these ones will ever be worn outside my flat but I just can't resist. I'm trying to persuade myself it's all about learning the techniques - using denim, fitting the trousers, those snazzy denim seams... but it's not. It's because dungarees are just plain cool.
Yesterday I went to Goldhawk Road with the Hus-Beast to buy some denim. I was thinking a dark black denim would look cute, but the only dark denim they had was more of a washed out black which didn't quite fit the job. Instead I got a dark blue with a bit of a stretch, but quite a heavy weight to it. I got the trimmings, came home and cut out the pattern pieces, ironing them properly like a good girl.
But that's where I've stopped. The hurdle - how do you toile a pair of dungarees? I'm going to have to do one - I've got a strangely long torso which is a nightmare in any kind of one piece. But do I do the whole shebang? Does anyone have any recommendations?
Wish me luck peeps!
